Abstract

After three-dimensional structures of mesoporous crystals have been solved, these crystals can be used as molds to design and synthesize nano-structured materials utilizing the available spaces within the microporous crystals. The designed nanostructured materials can be further utilized as molds, to create new meso- or nano-structured materials. Thus the nano-network structures are basically controlled by the geometries of spaces available within the mesoporous materials used, and this route opens new field for synthesis of novel nano-structured materials, which, otherwise, can not be synthesized directly on their own. To date, several ordered carbon and Pt nano-networks have been synthesized from silica-mesoporous crystals. During our studies, by close structural investigation employing electron microscopy (EM), we observed new structural features in these materials. Here, we discuss the structural features from both atomic and mesoscopic scales and possibilities to control their fine structures for further usage.
